I'm really too ignorant to be answering questions and should be asking some.

However I can't think of any.

Except: any clues in the logs?  

Look here:

 /usr/share/doc/systemd/README.Debian.gz

under

 Debugging boot/shutdown problems

which explains how to create a root debug shell on VT 9 available quite
late in the shutdown process; or, failing or in lieu of that, generating a
shutdown-log.txt file instead.

Good luck.
